EXECUTIVE INTERVIEW – Immunic Therapeutics: Developing Next-Generation Oral Drugs in Chronic Inflammatory, Autoimmune & Infectious Diseases
Daniel Vitt, PhD, Immunic’s Chief Executive Officer and President, discusses his company’s pipeline of selective, small molecule therapies aimed at treating chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, and its recent progress.
Dr. Rajiv Khosla, CEO of Enteris BioPharma, discusses how his company’s innovative oral formulation technology is helping the pharmaceutical industry overcome the hurdle of low bioavailability to reshape treatment categories and expand market opportunities with minimal financial and regulatory risks.
Mark Behlke, MD, PhD, says gene editing raises legitimate questions and fears about possible risks and misuse, and given the relative technical ease and low cost of CRISPR gene editing, this is likely to find widespread use in both medicine and agriculture.
John S. Vrettos, PhD, says numerous technologies are currently in development that are designed to enable the oral delivery of peptides. Though each has its unique set of properties and capabilities, all must overcome key obstacles to successfully deliver peptides via the oral route.
Nora Khaldi, PhD, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Nuritas, discusses the company’s innovative approach to accelerating the discovery of novel therapeutic peptides that address unmet patient needs in multiple disease areas.
Dieter Lingelbach, MBA, discusses the history and science of viral vectors, their current applications, and why they are a vital component in contemporary gene therapy development.
